False passports, but not a problem for these folk

"A man who may have unknowingly helped funnel money to terrorists behind the Easter bombings in Sri Lanka has been granted refugee status in New Zealand.

The Immigration and Protection Tribunal found the man was not involved in supporting terrorist goals and did not know who the money went to or came from.

It heard he carried out several transactions a month in a money transfer scheme involving his mother-in-law overseas and a foreign broker.

His Tamilian wife was arrested and beaten after the 2019 bombings as police tried to find him. She was released after a bribe was paid, and the couple went into hiding.

They flew to New Zealand on false passports, and were granted refugee status in June on appeal.

The tribunal ruled their evidence was "credible, consistent and compelling"."

........will keep his identity secret.........
New Zealand Over Zealous Privacy laws !!

The couple who flew and drove from Auckland to Wanaka last week, contrary to the present Covid lockdown situation forbidding such activity, have finally had their names released, but why were they ever suppressed in the first place, and why haven't they been charged, its not in any doubt that they did that.

Apparently their names were all over Social Media anyway, whatever that is, but some unfortunate 21 year old innocent female with the same name has been roundly abused and defiled as a result.

Crime Doesn't Pay - except in New Zealand, where we are running out of wet bus tickets.

A dispute between current and past elected officials of the Māori Council has now extended to a complaint to police about use of bank accounts, reports Aaron Smale

.
The Māori Council has made a formal complaint to the police about tens of thousands of dollars paid out of its accounts after they were to be frozen at the conclusion of its elections.

The letter says that unauthorised payments were made from the accounts without authority after the end of NZMC elections held in May. The 11-page letter with accompanying documentation was sent to Police Commissioner Andrew Coster and is signed by Professor Gary Hook and John Hooker, co-chairs of the Finance, Audit and Risk Committee of the NZ Māori Council.

The letter says: “The NZMC wishes to formally complain about $76,174.05 withdrawn from its accounts without authority. It asks the police to investigate these matters and to ensure that they are properly dealt with.”
